@RianC Be interested in your thoughts when you crack it. It was your steer to the deal on Amazon that piqued my interest so cheers for that. Looking forward to trying it.

@Timp - will do! Not sure of the year of my bottle. Possibly 2000 or 2018 as I think I know what the 2019 looks like, and that was the one I tried in the pub. This one has column stills and tall foliage as the artwork, and you'd think the most recent bottling would come from Amazon.

@RianC Mine came through today, similar design of stills and stuff and the bottle seems to indicate it was bottled in 2019. Gonna try some tonight, no will power. Haha.

Thoroughly enjoyed a generous sample of Montelobos Mezcal Joven 43.2% from @RianC last night.

It was quite an eye opener to me and as advised ( by @RianC cheers mate ) I drank it alongside a pour of Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia. This really did highlight the differences and I loved the extra strength, freshness and beautiful gentle smoke of the Montelobos.

Will be definitely be acquiring a bottle soon. Cheers..

@Timp - glad you enjoyed it! I need to finish the bottle off actually so a nice reminder.

Polished off the Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia on Sat night. Not sure if I'll buy another as I thought it was expensive for 38% but still damn tasty and very quaffable. I doubt it's seen as a connoisseurs tequila by those in the know but goes to show that, if you make something appealing and tasty, folk will enjoy regardless. Perhaps I'll branch out and look for another anejo when I next get the itch though.

I have an open bottle of tequila hidden away in a very dark place. Every now and then, (very infrequently I'll add) it sees the light of day to reconnect with its friends salt, lemon and sometimes lime. There is a reason (at least for me) it has the reputation of one, two, three, floor.
